AMCS 3340 - A History Of The Golden Age Of Children's Literature

Description
A survey of Golden Age texts for children from "Alice in Wonderland" to "The Secret Garden." British and American, 1865-1914. Fiction, drama, poetry. In this course we will examine a remarkable period in the history of children's literature. The texts we read will cover a broad range of genres, from domestic fiction to fantasy literature to stories of adventure. The settings include the British nursery, the American small town, the plains of Africa, and a rabbit hole. The depictions of and assumptions about children that emerge from these disparate texts will guide our investigation of the period's concept of childhood. Students will be encouraged to take a fresh look at works whose familiarity and/or iconic status have in the past exempted them from serious analysis. Authors will include Alcott, Du Bois, Dunbar, Carroll, Barrie, Baum, Burnett, Nesbit, Stevenson and Twain. Critical readings accompany each text. Satisfies the Nineteenth Century requirement.
